FIREBRAND Senator Jacqui Lambie is building a new political party, applying to register the group as the Jacqui Lambie Network.
The Tasmanian Senator came to prominence after winning her seat as a Palmer United Party candidate.
She later split from the party after repeatedly and publicly contradicting comments made by leader Clive Palmer.
